RAGE – new game from ID Software

Here’s a rather awesome piece of news to sink your teeth into, a new first person shooter/racing game hybrid of some sort called RAGE.  It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world very similar to that of Fallout 3, but has an interesting racing element and looks to borrow heavily from a variety of games.  Think Fallout 3, Half Life 2, Bioshock and FUEL all crammed into one and I reckon you’ll be close to imagining what this game will hopefully deliver.

RAGE is the next blockbuster from id Software, the inventors of the firstperson shooter.  “RAGE represents a new direction for our games,” says Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software.  “RAGE is a shooter unlike any other, developed on our cutting edge new technology, and built to the exacting standards id is famous for.”  Built on the id Tech5 game engine, RAGE will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Macintosh computers.

No news of a release date yet, although it’s early days yet.  Take a look at the trailer:

Keep an eye on the teaser site as well, at the moment it only contains the trailer but no doubt more information will become available approaching the game’s release date.

    Now that looks like an awesome game 🙂

  2. It certainly does, I’m loving the idea of combining a good looking FPS with a good looking combat-style racing game as well.
